Yeah sure that is fine, but that is absolutely irrelevant to the point about Fox Footy being on during the off season. Especially since it only showing replayed games.
In fact there were complaints from some about Fox Footy having no coverage of the actual free agency and trade periods on the Fox Footy channel. The channel had shut off all shows by then and only showed replayed matches.
The idea that customers who pay Foxtel should be denied the right to watch, what is already barely a product anyway, for 4-5 months, because of some random "there is no off season" whine, is in fact unbelievable.
Everything you have said has absolutely nothing to do with Fox Footy being online during the off season. I for one think that they should have showed random older matches and classic Grand Finals rather than repeating the NAB Cup and every game of the AFL season. The fact you're saying that the money I pay should actually receive a channel that is shut down is ridiculous.
